Dawat E Mhavra | दावत ए म्हावरं | Koli Food Feast 27th Feb 2022

We invite you to a Koli fest, the Dawat-E-Mhavra.
This fish feast will also give an insight on how to eat fish, what is the best time to eat a particular fish.

Everyone knows that the Koli fisherfolks are one of the oldest communities that call Mumbai their home. But today, their livelihoods and way of life are under threat from multiple fronts, and they are sidelined to the edges of the city’s life. The fishing community is also being exploited politically. The ‘children of the soil’ face the challenge of saving their villages or Koliwadas and livelihoods from pollution threats to the sea.

At Hallu Hallu we create moments and experiences to better understand our city – its older culture, languages, and food. We also conduct walks to acknowledge the traditions of coastal communities of the Mumbai region, be it Versova, Madh, Worli, and Ambu Island walk or the East Indian walks.

One way to experience it is through food and the best time to savour is during January and February. The best place to share a Koli meal is in a Koli home.

Hallu Hallu would love to introduce you to culinarian Harsha Tapke. Harsha Tapke has represented her Koli community on various forums. She was also part of the team that worked on Lost Recipe called Paplet Pankanji. She is also an integral part of many 5 star hotels when Koli food festivals are held.

We invite you to a Koli fest, the Dawat-E-Mhavra, as the experience is called in the Tapke family’s own language.
This feast will also give an insight on how to eat fish , what is the best time to eat a particular fish.
